    I am visiting Hollywood Studios and going on the Disney Dream cruise this summer. Both have a Beauty and the Beast show. Are the shows different enough where we should see both? Or just 1 if it will be repetitive? I have 5 & 7 yr old boys. Thanks!

    Hi there, Jaime!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so glad you stopped by with your question about your upcoming trip to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and onboard a Disney Cruise Line vacation! Between theme parks, the Disney Dream and Castaway Cay, you are going to have the best time!  

    I am so glad you asked such a great question about the two live “Beauty and the Beast” shows at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and onboard the Disney Dream!  And, the short answer is – YES!  They are very different from one another and both spectacular!  The live show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is very much like the animated movie while the onboard Broadway-style show is similar to the recent live-action movie and uses some incredible puppetry to make the characters come alive.  I think your boys (and you!) would thoroughly enjoy both if you can fit them both into your schedule.  Luckily, the onboard show will be part of the evening entertainment eliminating any decision-making as to how to spend your evening!  Depending on your dinner seating, you will have time to see either the first or second performance in the Walt Disney Theatre.

    Make sure you download BOTH the My Disney Experience App and the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app before your vacation.  There you will find schedules of the shows as well as other entertainment at both the theme parks and onboard.

    As you continue planning for your Land and Sea adventure, please come back with any other questions you may have!
